Blurb:  The Angelic Business trilogy tells the story of Pink, a 17 year old girl whose ordinary life gets suddenly invaded by demons and angels telling her she is ‘the elected’ and has the future of humanity, and of Heaven and Hell, in her hands. Or perhaps she isn’t. It depends on whom she believes. Weird things start happening all around her, and her friends and family become possible victims of these paranormal beings. Is Pink the true ‘elected’? And if she is, what will she do about it?
Angelic Business. The Full Trilogy, collects the three novels in the Angelic Business YA series, and follows the story of Pink, who is the ‘elected’ to sort out the differences between Heaven and Hell. In Angelic Business 1. Pink Matters, we meet Pink, a 17-year-old girl, good student, articulate and smart. But she has never been the center of attention or reached the top ten list of the most popular and attractive girls at school. When two guys, G and Azrael, suddenly appear, claim to be angels, insist that she is, indeed, ‘special’, fight for her attention and help, and tell her she is the key to the future of the universe, she is quite cynical. But these guys can ‘do’ pretty amazing things, even miracles, so she has to do some thinking. In Angelic Business 2. Shapes of Greg, Pink discovers that demons come in all shapes and sizes, that some celestial and demonical beings can be very stubborn, and manages to save one of her closest friends, Sylvia, from a very dangerous situation, with a little help, both human and otherworldly. But she knows she has to be careful because Hell doesn’t lose gracefully and demons make no favors. Everything comes with a price tag. Angelic Business 3. Pink, Angel or Demon?, gets angels and demons really close to Pink’s home. She knows she has to make a decision before somebody decides for her. She does her best to ensure that all her friends and family will be happy, and prepares for the final battle, with some plotting and conspiring in between and even a bit of romance thrown in for good measure.
The battle between Heaven and Hell will be fought by Pink, a 17 year old girl, who refuses to believe in angels and demons. But if they dare to threaten her friends and family, they’ll really have a fight on their hands.

39. Pieces Like Pottery by Dan Buri


http://bookgoodies.com/a/B0163NLWDQ
 
Blurb:  The first collection of short fiction from Dan Buri, Pieces Like Pottery is an exploration of heartbreak and redemption that announces the arrival of a new American author. In this distinct selection of stories marked by struggle and compassion, Pieces Like Pottery is a powerful examination of the sorrows of life, the strength of character, the steadfast of courage, and the resiliency of love requisite to find redemption.

Filled with graceful insight into the human condition, each linked story presents a tale of loss and love mirroring themes from each of the five Sorrowful Mysteries. In 'Expect Dragons', James Hinri learns that his old high school teacher is dying. Wanting to tell Mr. Smith one last time how much his teaching impacted him, James drives across the country revisiting past encounters with his father's rejection and the pain of his youth. Disillusioned and losing hope, little did James know that Mr. Smith had one final lesson for him.

In 'The Gravesite', Lisa and Mike's marriage hangs in the balance after the disappearance of their only son while backpacking in Thailand. Mike thinks the authorities are right—that Chris fell to his death in a hiking accident—but Lisa has her doubts. Her son was too strong to die this young, and no one can explain to her why new posts continue to appear on her son's blog.

'Twenty-Two' looks in on the lives of a dock worker suffering from the guilt of a life not lived and a bartender making the best of each day, even though he can see clearly how his life should have been different. The two find their worlds collide when a past tragedy shockingly connects them.

A collection of nine stories, each exquisitely written and charged with merciful insight into the trials of life, Pieces Like Pottery reminds us of the sorrows we all encounter in life and the kindness we receive, oftentimes from the unlikeliest of places.

She knows he’s not quite human and realizes she may have found a kindred spirit, someone whose secrets are as deadly as her own. When Nik awakes, his attraction to Juliette is instant. While she heals his body, he wants to heal her soul. But danger is lurking in the swamp, and the longer they stay together, the more likely they are to lose everything.

With her family, Fernanda joins Juan Bautista de Anza's historic colonization expedition to California. On the arduous four-month journey, Fernanda makes friends with Feliciana, the young widow Fernanda can entrust with her deepest thoughts; Gloria, who becomes the sister Fernanda always wished for; and Gloria's handsome brother Miguel, gentle one moment, angry the next and, like Fernanda, a mestizo--half Indian and half Spanish. As Fernanda penetrates Miguel's layers of hidden feelings, she's torn between him and Nicolas, the Spanish soldier hoping to win her heart. But propelling Fernanda along the journey is her search for Mama's Pima Indian past, a past Mama refused to talk about, a past with secrets that Fernanda is determined to learn.

Her chef parents have taken Pepper and her little sister Sage on another restaurant venture to renovate the long-uninhabited Pebble Brook Lodge in the small town of Brookdale. Uninhabited that is except for a series of ghosts, each with his or her own haunting agenda, as Pepper slowly discovers. One of the unique features of the lodge is a creek running through the large dining room. Pepper learns that in 1966 a thirteen-year-old girl, Karen, drowned in the creek. Her ten-year-old brother, Willie Hullett, was accused of killing her. Willie, now middle-aged, lives with his mother in a cabin in the woods. Mrs. Hullett has never forgiven Willie for killing her beloved daughter. As Pepper secretly becomes acquainted with Willie and sees his gentle nature and his beautiful life-like carvings, she's convinced he did not kill his sister. With the help of her friend Ally Cressman, Pepper sets out to prove Willie's innocence. With Ouija board sessions, hauntings by four different ghosts, and time travel to 1939 and 1966, Pepper discovers there's more to Karen's death than she--or anyone in Brookdale--would have ever guessed.

Despite versatility in a wide range of regional dialects, stunt work, singing, ballroom dancing, archery, and field, street, and ice hockey, she has thus far been limited to an endless string of film extra and uncredited roles.

Alex’s small part in an underdog women’s hockey team film catches the eye of a visitor to the Vancouver set while in town for a game – Troy Talmadge, star and team captain of the American Hockey Conference’s Pittsburgh Rebels.

Dazzled by her on-ice flair, Troy appoints himself as Alex’s mentor. He urges his agent to take her on as a client and signed to a Women’s Hockey League contract, but the agent has something far better in mind: having her drafted as the AHC’s first woman player, specifically to the Rebels.

Will Alex survive the pressures that accompany her newly-found professional hockey career…or does it slowly freeze much as her previous stint as an actress?

56. Jail Diaries by Belinda Celayir


http://bookgoodies.com/a/B00PHT5J28


Blurb:  Foreword by Sirman Celayir, Belinda's father

The years 2004 to 2006 marked an especially difficult cycle in Belinda’s life. It began with her divorce from her good-for-naught husband of several years, who had recently quit work under some pretense, whom she caught stealing money from her purse to buy drugs. As I was told, Belinda was arrested for borrowing a car from a family friend, which car was then stolen from Belinda by a supposed friend, for which she became liable and taken to jail.

While in jail, Belinda's mom, with whom she had been living, died unexpectedly of cancer, upon which her (Belinda's) son was taken away from her home and given to her ex-mother-in-law in West Virginia. After also losing her job as "vet tech," the family home her mother had purchased, for which Belinda had been paying the mortgage, was declared delinquent and was put on sale by the bank.

While trying to make sense of these sudden and cataclysmic turn of events in jail, Belinda the free spirit felt like an animal in a cage. The poetry she composed during this very difficult time in her life reflects her shock and despair at her situation, her desperate way of maintaining some composure and passing time.

The cycle began to wane when I picked her up from jail upon her release on Aug. 9, 2006 and moved her to a new condo I had just purchased for Belinda in Fernandina, Florida, where our Anne (my mother, her grandmother) was waiting for her with open arms, who had raised Belinda as much as Belinda's mother when Belinda was a child. This was eight years ago . . . Anne, who lived to age 97, passed away two months ago (on Sep. 9, 2014). Belinda has been employed since her arrival, presently living with a roommate in another apartment in this same complex, driving her own car, and is in the process of stabilizing while also having fun. She is in touch with her son (Jeremy), who is now a young adult employed in West Virginia near his other grandmother.

57. Lunar Rampage by Samantha Cross


http://bookgoodies.com/a/B00X68H7BS
 
Blurb:  Photographer, animal lover, and unfortunately for the summer, the new girl in town, Cora Nash considers herself a simple girl. Renovating and living at her grandmother's house seemed like a good idea, until events took a turn for the bizarre. Garbage cans viciously torn into, howls from the woods, wild animals behaving erratically, and an ominous warning from the good looking bad boy, "Stay out of the forest."

This seemingly normal town hides a mysterious and violent secret. When one of the townsfolk up and disappears in the forest, leaving nothing but a pair of shoes, Cora is the only person willing to investigate. The answer, however, is nothing she could have ever anticipated, when under a full moon she finds herself face to face with a... werewolf.

If werewolves don't exist, where did it come from? And... more importantly, who could it be?

http://bookgoodies.com/a/B018R7TLZ2
 
Blurb:  What happens when a clandestine group of politicians and intelligence operatives run prototype weapons through Lieutenant Peter Bank’s jurisdiction? Nothing, they’re clandestine, no one knows they exist or what they do... Right?

Correct, right up until one of their prototype weapons turns up at a drug bust, along with a congressman’s son who likes to moonlight as criminal elite.

The paperwork on the arrest is not finished before an army of politicos and local executive pressure comes down on Banks and his narcotics unit like a thousand year flood. Everyone wants to make the arrest of a prominent politician’s offspring go away, even Bank’s own Chief of Police. Normally that wouldn’t be a problem. Most cops follow orders from the chief, most cops have a stake in their careers.

Peter Banks has been burned before by political fixers who seemed to think the various strata of society are not all created, or treated equally under the law. Banks also has a team behind him that would follow him to hell and back if it meant getting the job done.

From an exclusive island off the coast of South Carolina, the mountains in the upstate, to the gutters of Charleston, SC Banks and his team will charge through mercenaries, assassins, and their own hierarchy to see justice done; and they will do it at terrible cost.

Spoilers details what happens when a determined police unit puts service and doing the right thing above themselves. It is a fast paced, intricate, and explosive read that leaves the audience exhausted and begging for more after the last page is turned.

92. The Ghosts of Ravencrest by Tamara Thorne and Alistair Cross


http://bookgoodies.com/a/B015NMZC6Q
 
Blurb:  Darkness Never Dies ... 

Ravencrest Manor has always been part of the family. The ancestral home of the Mannings, Ravencrest’s walls have been witness to generations of unimaginable scandal, horror, and depravity. Imported stone by stone from England to northern California in the early 1800s, the manor now houses widower Eric Manning, his children, and his staff. Ravencrest stands alone, holding its memories and ghosts close to its dark heart, casting long, black shadows across its grand lawns, through the surrounding forests, and over the picturesque town of Devilswood, below.

Dare to Cross the Threshold ... 


Ravencrest Manor is the most beautiful thing new governess, Belinda Moorland, has ever seen, but as she learns more about its tangled past of romance and terror, she realizes that beauty has a dark side. Ravencrest is built on secrets, and its inhabitants seem to be keeping plenty of their own - from the handsome English butler, Grant Phister, to the power-mad administrator, Mrs. Heller, to Eric Manning himself, who watches her with dark, fathomless eyes. But Belinda soon realizes that the living who dwell in Ravencrest have nothing on the other inhabitants - the ones who walk the darkened halls by night … the ones who enter her dreams … the ones who are watching … and waiting …

Welcome to Ravencrest ... 


Who is the man digging in the garden beyond Belinda’s bedroom window? Who - or what - is watching her from the vents? From ghostly screams and the clutching bony fingers of death in the indoor pool, to the trio of gliding nuns in the east wing who come at Belinda with black blazing eyes, to the beckoning little girl in the red dress who died more than two centuries ago, Belinda is thrust into a world of waking nightmares where there is no distinction between the living and the dead, and there are no limits to the horrors that await. Witchcraft is afoot at Ravencrest and as unspeakable terrors begin to unfold, Belinda realizes that her beautiful new home is a keeper of tragedy, a collector of souls. And it wants to add her to its collection …

Blurb:  Long before there were texts, instant messaging, and endless social networks, we had phones and snail mail. And if we wanted a date, we actually had to talk to the other person first. This would often delay the inevitable, as we first had to gather our nerves in order to ask out the intended person. This was the case for young JR, who was looking forward to his long awaited Halloween date with the girl of his dreams. When he finally got up the nerve to ask Destiny out, she said yes. All he had to do was cut a few lawns to make a buck or two, and then take his younger siblings trick-or-treating. After that, he was free to enjoy his date, and join his friends at a legendary Halloween party. What could go wrong?

The thrills start early that Halloween day, when JR decides to get an application for a job and a burrito at the same time. The workers at the fast food restaurant had different plans, however, and leave JR reeling, and wondering what happened. As he makes his way through the day, he is met with a host of obstacles and evil beings trying to eliminate him and his family. These implausible, chilling antics last throughout Halloween day and into the night. How will JR respond? Can he save himself? Can he save his family? And what about Destiny, can he salvage his date?

97. Mayan Blood by Theresa Dalayne


http://bookgoodies.com/a/B018RT2350
 
Blurb:  Their empires have fallen, but their mythology lives on…
Zanya Coreandero is a seventeen-year-old orphan with only a single friend and no hope for a normal life. Diagnosed with anxiety and night terrors, no one believes her cuts and bruises are a result of an evil entity, and not a brutal case of self-harm.

With the only home she’s ever known being the isolated institution—where breakfast is a handful of medications, the psychiatry sessions are mandatory, and her every move is watched—the only relief is her red-haired roommate named Tara, who’s more like a little sister than her best friend.

Free will is strong, but destiny is stronger…

When Zanya is kidnapped, she meets a group of gifted Mayan descendants, each with a unique ability. Gone from a nameless castaway to the only hope of mankind, Zanya is forced to make a grueling decision: bond with an enchanted stone and save humanity from rising underworld forces, or watch helplessly as Earth falls victim to a familiar dark deity from her dreams. This time, he’s playing for keeps.

A wicked secret hides behind a handsome face…

When Arwan, a dark-eyed timebender, takes interest in Zanya's mission, it's unclear if his intention is to help, or if he's on a hell-bent mission for revenge. Wary of falling for another guy with major secrets and a tainted past, Zanya fights to keep her distance. If only her heart gave her a choice.

Thomas longs to tell Natalie everything he knows about her, about them. But it's time that is the problem yet. There is a tragedy that they must endure before she can fully accept who they are, and why they are destined to be together. A tragedy that Thomas has been through once, and will go through again to find the piece of his heart that has been missing all these many years.

Claire, Jill, Caroline, and Diane are in for more than a little R and R.   Windward Cottage has its own special powers of seduction.  After 35 years of friendship they thought they knew everything about each other, but the old house draws confessions out of each of them revealing secrets they never knew, and guides them unwillingly into a 50-year-old mystery.

What was planned to be a vacation filled with fun, food, and lots of reminiscing turns into one that will change their lives forever.  Who or what is trying to frighten them?  What is it about this house that won’t let them go?   The four women reluctantly take on a mission that leads them beyond their wildest expectations.  Only one woman’s stubborn determination keeps them at Windward Cottage when common sense tells them to leave.   Fear, danger, and unexplained events connect the four women to each other and to Windward Cottage.  Where do they go from here?  Can their friendships survive this vacation?  Three of them find their futures, and one finds her past.

  32. Thank you for this most excellent giveaway. My email is svannort@live.com. I prefer historical romance but am open to all the romance genre's. I do not like any story with extreme violence in it. Things like rape or severe beating just aren't to my liking. Have a great day!

  34. We have winners! I will be contacting the authors this weekend, so you should have some of your books by next week. Keep an eye out for an email from me, in case I have questions about mailing addresses.

    So happy you could all participate! Lovely meeting you! :)
